Updating the welcome post

I think the welcome post needs to be edited to correspond to the purpose of the IoP Alliance community forum, not only the IoP Alliance itself.

How about:

Welcome to the IoP Alliance community platform!

Who are we?
The IoP Alliance (IOPA) is a global alliance of people and organizations who believe in a future of production defined by decentralized manufacturing and shared knowledge. We are building a foundation to enable this future, a world where people can quickly create and fabricate products made from a combination of locally sourced materials and global designs. Groups currently represented in this community cover hardware design, design sharing platforms, manufacturers and manufacturing associations, maker and fab lab communities, assistive technology, disaster relief, international development, and open science hardware.

What is this website?
The purpose of the IOPA community platform is to enable open and easy participation of the IOPA community in the work to be done towards building an Internet of Production, and discussions to be started on any related topic.

@BarbaraSchack I’ve update the welcome post. The first abbreviation about refers to the “IoP” and the other abbreviations refer to the “IOPA”. It’s been abbreviated as the “IoPA” most of the time in the documentation I’ve seen, and that’s how it’s abbreviated in the logo so I used “IoPA” through out the post, but am happy to change it to the “IOPA” if that’s what we’re standardising on.
